Happy Tuesday and it is time — Buying Time — for a look at some great pre-owned copy watches on offer. Today’s theme is dive fake watches, which I would surmise is the largest, most talked about, most popular “category” of copy watches out there. And for good reason — most of us just can’t resist a good looking fake watches that we can wear with us in the pool or the ocean, SCUBA diving or desk diving. Dive fake watches could be one of the most debated categories as well — just ask any ten aficionados what defines a dive fake watches (or Google it) and see the range of answers you get. Of course there are standards like the ISO 6425 (which is by no means compulsory) and then there are specs: helium escape valve, luminosity, underwater legibility, bezel design, depth/water resistance rating, strap style, and more.
Which of these details matters to you, well that’s for you to decide. I’m certainly not here today to get into the minutiae and history of dive fake watches (boooring) — I just want to share with you some awesome, water-loving copy watches that are looking for a good home. Let’s jump on in and check out this week’s lineup of pre-owned dive fake watches.
Replica IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Cousteau IW3767-06
This particular design for the Aquatimer debuted in 2010 and was only around for a few years. There was really only one copy watches from the 2010 release that I really got excited about, and the fake watches you see here just happens to be it. The 2010 replica IWC Aquatimer Tribute to Jacques Cousteau was relesaed as an anniversary fake watches of sorts — June 11, 2010 was be the 100th anniversary of Jacques-Yves Cousteau’s birth (he actually passed away in 1997 at the age of 87), which explains the “1910 – 2010” engraving on the caseback (pictured below).
Replica IWC Aquatimer Chronograph IW3719-18
This one is nostalgic for me, and maybe you too. Nothing too old school, but I do really like this generation of replica IWC Aquatimer. This piece is cased in titanium, and has both a chronograph (operated by the upper pusher on the case) and an internal rotating bezel (operated by the lower pusher on the case). It’s just a cool looking fake watches from a time when I seem to recall myself being more interested in replica IWC than I am today. The only downside is some sentimental engraving on the caseback (which could easily be taken care of by another engraver). Even so, fake watches like this don’t pop up very often and I doubt this one will last long.
replica Breitling Superocean II A1736402/BA32
Now here’s a big boy dive fake watches — 1,500 meter (5,000 feet) water resistance rating! I guess that’s what caught my eye when I was looking for dive fake watches for this week. This fake watches is also no doubt an attention getter with its solid yellow chapter ring and masculine look that replica Breitling is known for. Thing is, this pre-owned replica Breitling Superocean II is on a leather strap with clasp which means that its probably been more of a desk diver than a deep diver…not that there’s anything wrong with that! I’m not a huge replica Breitling fan, but that probably puts me in some sort of minority…don’t be afraid to scoop this one up if you are a replica Breitling fan.
Calibre de Cartier Diver W7100056
Available in a range of metals, the fake watches available here has a 42mm steel case with DLC-coated bezel, lumed indices, and a 300m/1,000 ft water resistance rating. The dial also has a tri-date window and a small seconds sub dial. You can see tht this copy watches retains a bit more elegance than you will find in many other divers. Inside is the automatic mechanical caliber 1904 MC, and though not visible through the caseback as is typical for a dive watch, you can rest easy knowing it is a high quality caliber.
I want to wrap up with this copy watches from Cartier. It moves up the price scale a bit, but is worth a look if you want both a fully spec’d dive copy watches that also has the Cartier name, quality and prestige with it. Cartier introduced the “Calibre de Cartier” in 2014 as a ISO 6425 spec’d diver’s copy watches. The last Cartier I owned was a Tank Francaise (and I do miss it sometimes) but if I were to pull the trigger again this Calibre diver would probably be my pick.
Replica Tag Heuer Aquaracer Limited Edition Calibre 16 CAJ2111.BAO872
This copy watches came out a couple years when replica TAG Heuer partnered with Oracle Racing Team USA in the 34th America’s Cup. With a 500m water resistance rating, it is well suited for water action.
